Beauty Bubble: Top 10 Worst Skin Cities

Last week we listed Top 10 Best Skin Cities.

And remember last week how I was ranting about how I didn’t think it was fair that polluted NYC was on the “Top 10 Best Skin Cities” list? Well, I’m ranting again, dog-on it!!

My favorite Floridian city Tampa Bay is on this list. What the! The commentary says it is because we “flock to tanning salons”. We who?

*looks around*

Not this brown girl. Floridians aren’t as tanned obsessed as people makes us to be. Los Angeles, on the other hand….whoa!

Check the list and come back and rant with me. Do your think your city is one of the top 10 worst skin cities?

Tell me!
The 13 Worst-Skin Cities

The environmental aggressors in these towns could be damaging your skin

Before blowing your next paycheck at the derm’s office or on pricey skin care products, take a closer look at the place you call home. We looked at pollution levels, sunshine and humidity averages, skin cancer, smoking rates, and even tanning salons per capita to determine which U.S. locales could be disastrous for your skin. Did your city make the list?

    No you DIDN’T just dis LA! lol We don’t tan, we MYSTIC tan (fake tan) hahaha.

  • Tracey

  • hi

    HI B! I was wondering why I never see you listed on the Total Beauty Weekend web tour or whatever it’s called since you are affiliated with them and stuff.

    i think it’s just the quantity of places that offer tans and such that they consider when they put together the lists.

    i think i read somewhere (and it’s the weekend so don’t go quoting me) that they use a ratio to see the salons/tanning beds per block/person to make their evaluations. in either case it goes more for the rural areas messing it all up for us big city bright lights folks b/c all they got are houses and trees and quiet blocks with the suburban happiness

    lmao don’t i sound like the typical new yorker :)

    This is a really great top ten list, Bakersfield has such bad air quality, I am so surprised that so many people live there. It’s basically hell on earth, skin-wise. Anyone can post their own list to our site The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
